Two big nights of action



LISMORE Speedway will feature a variety of action this weekend. Tonight the Speedcars will continue to turn out the exciting, dangerous action that they are capable of. Also tonight, the AMCAs will contest the Andrew Walker Memorial. Andrew Walker, an enthusiastic competitor in the AMCA division, died about a year ago. The larger-than-life personality was popular among his rivals, and a good field is expected to honour his memory. Supporting the AMCAs and the Speedcars tonight are the four-cylinders, streeters, the second night of the Stocker Challenge, limited sprinters, limited sedans and juniors. Tomorrow night the 'bad, bad boys in their nasty, nasty toys' will return with the V8 Dirt Modifieds. The local cars of Steve Wright, Rian Collier, Aaron Suffolk and Michael Butcher have stepped up this season with some fine podium drives, but tomorrow night their task will be much more difficult against the likes of Stuart Herne, Mark Robinson and Luke Oldfield. A full field of V8s is expected to provide the great racing that only V8 Dirt Modifieds can produce. There are 21 of the V8s nominated, with seven Queensland cars. "I can win when these big guns aren't here, but I need to step up to the next level and win while they are all here," Steve Wright said. Luke Oldfield has recently completed an all new transporter and showed his recent form with second placing at the Australian titles. On both nights gates will open at 3pm, with racing from 6pm.
